mentally fit as far as making the right reads and opening up holes for the running backs to run through. >> progression from week one to week two. let's check in with john harbaugh at the podium. >> first of all, just addressing the end of the game, ok, i just addressed it with our team, normally, you know i want to apologize to the chiefs if they feel like we were not doing the right thing tend of the game, that wasn't the mindset. ok. the mindset was this was preseason f this was regular season, we would have been on a knee. the idea is give these young guys who work hard and who are trying to make a football team this, football team or another football team to play the whole 60 minutes and give them a chance to show what they can do. offensive line, rbs, everybody. that's the mindset. i know that's debateable. i know it's a point of view both ways. i understand that. i felt like that was the right thing to do for our players to give them a chance to see what they could do. that was the thinking on that. the other thing is what our guys did between last week and this week. talk about the second week.
trying to make the most improvement. our guys worked as hard as i have ever seen a football team work. i'm talking about the leaders, terrell suggs, haloti ngata and joe flaccos. have i never seen a football team work as hard as they worked this week and showed up in the way we played. took it to the field. a lot of things we can work on to get better and we will work on those things this week. but proud of the work ethic and what can he did between last week and this week. >> did it look like you were explaining that at the end of the game, did it seem like todd understood after you explained it? >> yes, you see both sides and i think he said i don't know about that. i said preseason, preseason. he said ok. i and i got a lot of respect for todd hail why and a lot of respect for the chiefs organization and what they do. that's a really good football team. very physical football team and just i think they're doing a great job with the football team. it was just purely about trying to get young guys a chance 234
in a game situation to show their abilities. >> anything for you bringing joe back out to start the fourth quarter, was that a sign you were concerned about the first half? >> no, that was the plan. we wanted to take our first offense into the first series in the third quarter if we could. in a normal year when we have o.t.a.'s we have gone to halftime but we felt we needed more work. next week we will play them as long as we can, obviously within reason. we need work. >> did you say at the end of the game at the other end, you would like to see yir defense play goal line. isn't that what this is about? >> to see the guys play. i don't it's anything -- it's -- those guys are the guys trying to make the last part of the roster and i think you have an opportunity on both sides to see how guys play. great point you're making. >> talk about reid's performance. >> david reed? i thought, the first drop obviously i wasn't too happy with and he came back and made the very next catch and tyrod came again for the big play. to see guys come up with the
play was huge. plus drew pass interference down the left side, right? for only practicing a couple days, that was great to see. >> can you talk about joe scrambling to get out of the snocket >> you know what, i thought the protection was pretty good. i'm not saying -- i think in practice we got more pressure. young lie stepped up on the right side and did a good job. i can't wait to see the tape and how it worked out. i thought the line did ok. we will see on tape though. >> what about first string corners. looked like they played well. >> the ability -- and young guys did a good job, not just young guys, fox with his knee, lardarius played well and young guys. taking away quick passes and slants and look passes and those down the field completed and made a nice catch early. jimmy was there too and the corners played really well. >> what john harbaugh's saying, look, this is professional football.
you're trying to get work done. if todd haley was upset they were doing that, i'm sorry, do something different. you got to work. >> preseason is about evaluation, not about the regular season. there's no feelings that should be hurt there. i think that todd haley is a competitor and he knows that. he wanted to have ravens take a knee but certainly when you're talking about evaluation process, will he have to look at that and say my team should have stopped him. >> great point. kicker's name is succop. maybe they should suck it up. >> there it is. >> this is the nfl. if you whine about it, we don't have time. we do have time when we come back, demeck with the new number 83, lee evans of the baltimore ravens. had a rather impressive debut here at m&t bank stadium. here at m&t bank stadium. certainly wearing purple. you have arrived. sweet belt. e-reader for textbooks. gps. video camera for lectures. game pad.

but it was good to come out today and get some -- get some balls out and make some plays and get this thing moving in the right direction. >> it was instant chemistry between you and joe. talk about that. >> yeah, it was good. the game kind of seemed easy compared to what i went through earlier in the week, just being thrown out there against our defense, which is one of the best defenses in the league. >> you're inside first. and then we go outside. >> how about this play, that was one of the plays you snatched it out of the air and made the grab. >> yeah. he threw it out there and i tried to keep a feet inbounds and it worked out. >> the last one, 43-yard grab. man-to-man coverage gives you the ability to go down vertical. >> exactly. that's the chemistry have you to build being able to throw the ball and threaten defenses. q can do everything underneath and on the outside do pretty
much everything. add a vertical thread and it makes a much better offense. >> after everything i read, i was under the impression you could only go deep and run a nine route thrfment over the middle and catch and the nine. a lot more to your game maybe than people think. >> that's the goal. try to be complete receiver. and do everything. teams will try to take one thing away week to week. try to be as good as you can around all parts of the field. that's what i work on every day. >> looking back on your experiences and then moving forward in this ravens offense. how far do you think this offense can go? >> a ton of talent. sky's the limit. as long as we keep coming together and keep working together. we can be as good as the sky let's us be. i'm excited about it. been excited since i got here. today is a step in the right direction. >> lee, thank you so much for joining us today.
